About Man Truck & Bus

Man Truck & Bus NV, a part of the MAN Group, is the Belgian importer of trucks, buses, coaches, and light commercial vehicles for the MAN and NEOPLAN brands. They handle import, sales, marketing, maintenance, and after-sales service. The MAN brand is globally recognized for efficiency, innovation, and customer orientation.

Man Truck & Bus has tasked Cereus.be with developing a solution for the automatic installation of new laptops and managing Windows updates and software package deployments. Currently, new laptops are set up using an exact copy or image. The current process is entirely manual and time-consuming for each delivered laptop.

Desired solution

The decision has been made to implement Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager for deploying the laptops. With this tool, Man Truck & Bus can easily install software updates and perform compliance checks for each device in the organization's PC fleet, both at the main headquarters and at other locations.

Desired solution


The use of the tool creates significant time savings for the IT department. But users also gain efficiency. They can decide for themselves when they want to install certain upgrades and updates, thus saving time. A win-win situation.

Additionally, the organization gets a clear dashboard that keeps all devices under control. The IT department of Man Truck & Bus knows at any moment who has what software installed on which device.



The implementation of SCCM within our company has optimized and automated the deployment of new hardware. In addition to a smoother rollout, we now also have a better overview of our equipment & software, which provides a huge advantage in our active security patch management. Cereus understood our needs and delivered a project that meets all our requirements within the agreed timeframe.
